HOUSTON -

As if the Texans season hasn't been difficult enough, there's another problem. One of their star players, rookie wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, was hacked on social media.

Hopkins told us he found out he'd been hacked when his girlfriend told him. What she found wasn't a pretty sight.

On a day that was circled on the Texans calendar as Gary Kubiak's return to coaching, talk surrounding the team quickly shifted from practice to a post on the Instagram account belonging to Hopkins.

More specifically, a video involving a sexual act. After practice, Hopkins denied having anything to do with it.

It was Hopkins' girlfriend who quickly came to his defense on Twitter, posting on his page that his Instagram account had been hacked, and that Hopkins had been in meetings without a phone, when the video went viral.

When asked what he learned from all this, Hopkins said simply... get a better password.
